This project was fun!

And I love the colors!  This will be Project #1 of my new Card Club starting in October.  This is an altered “My Acrylix” tote — the papers are “Game On” by CTMH, accented with Hollyhock and Blush accessories.

The stamp set I used for the title is Chocolate Alphabet Large, from the new 2008 Fall Idea Book.

This club will have 6 members — each member takes a turn being the hostess for 6 months. As a club member, you receive your idea books free, you make 4 cards, and get to participate in a monthly door prize — in return, members make a minimum $25 purchase — we total up those orders and they equal a “party” and somebody gets to pick the hostess gifts that month.

If you would like more information about participating in my Hostess Card Club, please send me an e-mail — I would love to tell you more about it! All Club classes are held at my home, so no need to clean 🙂

New Paper Crafting Blog

I’ve decided to split into two blogs — I’ll keep the old one a family blog and this one will be my “Paper Crafting” Blog.  These are projects from this week — the first project is my August Cropper’s Club Layout… it’s made using papers from CTMH’s “Whoops-A-Daisy” Level 2 paper pack.  I’ve also created the title with a font from my CTMH font pack 2 — called CTMH Hippo.  I cut the letters out using my Silhouette machine.

This is an altered Photo Clothespin — I’m teaching this as a workshop on September 20th.  Please visit my website at – Training and Events for more information. 



The papers I used for this are from the new “Perfect Day” Level 2 paper pack.  Stamps are Chocolate Large Alphabet and Tiny Typewriter Alphabet.
